MONTEGO BAY, St James — Former champions Wadadah FC and last season's beaten finalists Montego Bay Boys' Club will be in action on Saturday as the Jamaica Football Federation's Western Confederation/ JB Rum Super League kicks off with four games. Two more games are scheduled for Sunday.

The four teams that were promoted to the Super League after winning their respective parish competitions will take the field on Saturday, three of them facing teams that made it to the semi-final last season.

Roaring River of Westmoreland and Grand Palladium of Hanover are making it to the Super League for the first time ever, while Catherine Hall of St James and Harmony FC of Trelawny are returning to the league after a few seasons away.

Wadadah FC, who lost in the semi-finals to eventual champions Sandals South Coast, will host Grand Palladium at Jarrett Park; Montego Bay Boys' Club face Harmony FC at the UDC field; Faulkland FC are away to Roaring River at the Petersfield Community Centre, while Catherine Hall will be up against Beaches Negril at the Irwin High School grounds.

On Sunday, former champions Granville United, who failed to make it to the top four last year, will open their season with an away game to Clark's Town at Cedric Titus High, while Hopewell United and Reggae Youths will meet at Kenilworth Heart Academy.

The 12 teams have been divided into two groups of six teams each, with the top teams after the first round meeting in the mid-season final, and the top two in each zone at the end of the third round of matches qualifying for the semi-finals.

Montego Bay Boys' Club will lead Zone 1 which also includes Reggae Youths, Beaches Negril, Hopewell United, Catherine Hall FC and Harmony FC.

On paper, Zone 2 looks to be the more competitive, as it includes Wadadah FC, Faulkland FC, Granville United, Clark's Town, Roaring River and Grand Palladium.
